the right ethernet cable question

Comcast gives me speed of 200mbps, I have most of my devices connected with Cat 5E cables. I have one of the latest modems from Comcast the one that looks like white tower. So should I upgrade those ethermet cables to Cat 6 and higher, or is Cat 5E good enough since my speed is only 200mbps. 

 

Thanks

Cat5e is good enough. They should all be cat5e if they are all not.
